"My mum was born in the Ponthir House in Monmouthshire in 1926, she was then Audrey Harris" Louise told us. "Her grandfather and grandmother ran the pub. He was also the local coal merchant. Mum was one of nine children of whom only one remains. They all stayed in Newport except my mum, who moved to London in her twenties and lived there for rest of her life. "
Louise came to look at the Lower Meadow as a final resting place for her mother. While she was there she did a drawing and then a painting when she returned home to London.
"As I also live in London, I just wanted the meadow in my own home," said Louise. "I am hoping to bring my mum to the meadow in January 2019."
We are grateful to her for letting us share the image on our website for others to appreciate. For me, it certainly captures the essence of Lower Meadow in the winter mists. I love it and hope you do too.
